Spoon is working on a new record, according to frontman Britt Daniel. In a band newsletter, Daniel said the group has been hanging out at drummer Jim Eno’s studio a lot lately, and—though the band is still in the midst of writing songs—“the shit is sounding good.” Daniel and company have also Instagrammed pics from inside the studio and dropped eight new song titles, including “The Rent I Pay,” “Naff Bag,” “Millionaires,” “Let Me Be Mine,” “Modern Girls,” “I Ain’t The One,” “Fresh From Your Pages,” and “Give Me It.”
Meanwhile, Daniel’s other band, Divine Fits, has just released a two-song single and will be continuing its seemingly never-ending tour well into the summer. Dates are below.
